Stewardship - Nisqually Land Trust

Join us at our Brighton Creek Protected Area for a morning of pulling invasive Himalayan blackberry. This is the first volunteer work party we've held at Brighton Creek, so come check it out and explore a new part of the watershed! Himalayan blackberry is one of the most widespread and destructive invasive weeds in Western Washington, so it's important that we stay on top of controlling it in at Brighton Creek.
